The Tianjin Eye – often referred to as the Teintsin Eye – is one of the region’s most iconic attractions and landmarks. This 120-metre-tall Ferris wheel stands over the Hai River and is quite the spectacle to see up-close.
A Few Facts
The Tianjin Eye holds quite a few accolades. It is recognized as the tallest Ferris wheel found in Asia and is the 10th overall in the world. It is also the only one of its kind to have been built up over a bridge. All in all, the wheel is outfitted with 8 passenger capsules and each ride takes up to 20-40 minutes.
There are several ways to get to the Tientsin Eye. If you’re staying at a Tianjin serviced apartment like the ones offered by Somerset International Building Tianjin, most of the main bus lines will pass through the wheel’s location.
How to Tour
The best way to enjoy the Tianjin Eye is to book a ride during the daytime. This will provide you with an unprecedented view of Tianjin and the countryside beyond from up high. It can be quite the spectacular time – also remember to bring your cameras with you!
The Best Vantage Point
You can also admire the beauty of the Tianjin Eye from afar instead of actually riding it. There are quite a few vantage points to choose from but Jingang Bridge is by far the best option.
